You have a battery for the wrong model, I think they also changed the configuration of the same model number so that it had to be returned for proper service.No matter what you do a 3 pin wont fit a 5 pin socket.

Battery on my garmin c510 sat nan wount hold a charge how easy is it to change


Had the same problem. Fixed with a new battery. Takes the same as a Streetpilot c530 and can be purchased anywhere on line. A 10 minute job with a soldering iron.

1. Open face plate. Unscrew 4 screws. Remove battery connector and clip.
2. Unsolder the wires to the two speakers - 4 wires.
3. Remove the sticky wrap from the old battery and place around the new one (to stop it rattling).
4. Solder back the new speaker wires.
5. Plug in battery, reassemble unit and charge Garmin off PC wih usb cable.
Done!

How to replace battery of Garmin StreetPilot C530 GPS ?


This is not a job for amateurs. You will need a few special tools, and a new battery (3.7 volt / 2200 mAh).
1- Use an old credit card to gently pry off the aqua-blue bezel from the face. That's the piece of trim that fits around the screen.
2- You will see four small #0 Phillips screws. Use a #0 Phillips driver to remove these four screws. You must have a steady, firm grip, and apply a good amount of pressure, or you can strip the heads. Try turning each screw just a tiny bit at a time, until they turn easy.
3- Sit the unit on a table, with the display facing up, and the serial # facing you.
4- Grip the front part, with the display, and pull it out of the back dish, about 4 cm. You may have to jiggle it a bit, to get the steel bracket holding the satellite detector to come loose. Do not yank it further than about 4 cm or you can rip off the flat cable.
5- Fold the display down, toward you, and rest it flat on the table.
6- You will see a steel bracket holding the battery in the dish part. Remove the two #0 screws holding the battery bracket. You may have to peel it off the battery, if there is adhesive around the battery.
7- The hard part: You have to decide to solder the new leads to the speakers (if your new battery came with the special connector), or else clip the 3 wires from the old battery and splice the old leads/wires to the new battery.

Garmin won't power on


My unit had the same problem. So I tried this first. With the display unit facing you, the aluminum cover plate has the the word GARMIN on it. Use you fingernail under the word Garmin and the cover plate comes off. The left part of the cover stays attached to GPS and the right side lifts up exposing the RESET button. I pressed RESET and POWER together and it works now. Hope this works for you also.

Reset my garmin streetpilot c530gps


There is no way to just "reset" the PIN. If you don't have the correct PIN, you must take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin.

Carefully remove face plate bezel. There is a reset button on the right side of the face. Press the button and then restart normally. It's in the owners manual if haven't lost yours like I did. The manual is on Garmins website.

Garmin c530 won't turn on


Have a c530 I purchased 11/2006. In 12/2006 had 3 instances where I shut unit off and it would not turn on. Garmin had me do resets which did nothing. Had to leave unit to discharge for 3 days, then plugged in USB and it powered up and was fine (for a week or so). They gave me a new unit and at the same time a system software upgrade was available. The c530 was perfect through all of 2007. Then in Jan 2008, the same failures occurred 3 times. I discharged it 3 times and it now works, but for how long? My advice is to get anoher model. I have 5, c330's for over a year and they have had 100% reliability. l

According to technical support, the "glitch" has been fixed with the latest web updater on the Garmin site. In the meantime, you will need to leave the unit unplugged for upto 48 hours to allow the battery die and the unit to get out of its "hang up". Once the battery is completely dead, plug the GPS into a computer (USB) and it should come back to life. Then do the update.

Hope this helps.

C330 will not turn on.


I had this problem once. Try plugging it into the USB for power. Remove the face plate - there's an indention underneath on the top side to get your finger nail underneath to pull it out. One you get the face plate off,there's a small button on the right side of the screen. You can try pressing that to see if it turns on.
